  • Dilapidated buildings on urban streets, flora overtaking abandoned gas pumps on a country lane, the evanescence of a hazy Venice sunset. At Ashawagh Hall, the eyes moved from theme to theme and from subject to subject, witness to how another set of eyes saw the world and committed it to paper and canvas.
  • Exactly one week before Halloween, two artists decided to offer their own trick and treats at a small beachfront cottage in Bridgehampton destined to face the wrecking ball.
  • Since opening this spring, Art Space 98, at the upper end of Newtown Lane in East Hampton, has presented an eclectic group of artists. The owners, Rosemarie Schiller and Tho­mas Buhler, began by showing their own work, then followed with Camille Perrottet’s photography, video, and installation work and Michael Oruch’s geometric abstractions.
  • The three-person show at Amagansett’s Ille Arts Gallery has a unifying theme in landscape painting, but the path each artist follows in addressing it diverges wildly.
  • An examination of the work of Connie Fox and William King will lead a slate of new exhibitions opening at Guild Hall on Sunday with a special reception from 3 to 5 p.m. Serving as guest curator for “Connie Fox and William King: An Artist Couple” is Gail Levin, a professor of art history at the City University of New York, author of many books and monographs on artists, and a contributor to The East Hampton Star. She is also the author of the exhibition catalog essay and will interview Ms. Fox preceding the reception at 2 p.m.
  • Paintings by Peter Lipman-Wulf, currently on view at the Romany Kramoris Gallery in Sag Harbor, beckon from the sidewalk in a pleasant way. Two of his watercolors on paper, casually tacked on boards, have been placed on easels in the storefront windows. The presentation is charmingly reminiscent of street art vendors in Paris along the Seine.
  • “Unlocking the Cage,” which won this year’s Zelda Penzel Giving Voice to the Voiceless award at the Hamptons International Film Festival, is a film about a lawyer’s quest to give certain human rights to animals.
  • Given everywhere that Aaron Eckhart has lived, it is surprising his visit this week to the Hamptons International Film Festival will be the first time he has been on the South Fork.
  • Sharing duties, if perhaps not careers and personal outlooks, the actor Alec Baldwin and Randy Mastro, a high-profile litigator, reflect on their first year as Hamptons International Film Festival co-chairmen.
  • Columbus Day weekend on the South Fork has come to mean much more than changing leaves and pumpkin picking. It is also a long weekend of film, lots and lots of film. The Hamptons International Film Festival will begin next Thursday, and by the time it ends on Oct. 10 it will have screened 126 films — features and shorts, narrative and documentary.
